    Pool is here!!

    Just had to share my excitement! R&L carriers just delivered it. Still waiting on the liner, hopefully that won't be too much longer. This weekend we will be finishing the leveling. Can't wait for this to be done! Pics to come once we start putting it up!

    Jules,

    About how long did delivery take from order time? I'm hopefully ordering a matrix within the next week.

    Thanks

    I ordered last Thursday (June 7th), so they have very fast shipping! The ladder came yesterday via FedEx. I didn't receive a shipping notice on the pool until Monday morning, but it had shipped by the 8th. Just telling you that so you don't stalk your email for days (not that I did that lol!) waiting for a tracking number.

    I'll tell ya, I have scoured the net for better prices and I keep going back to this site! I have it book marked and alothough I'm not set on round or oval just yet and I like to look for the better buy, deal... whatever... They have beaten local prices up, down and sideways around here. I was just curious as to who you ordered from!

    Re: Pool is here!!

    Just wanted to update. We didn't get our pool up last summer, we were defeated by rock hard clay and Texas heat. We have our install date set for June 10th. Our electrician friend is coming tomorrow to give us a bid on the electrical work. 12 more days and finally our pool will be up, God willing! I'm so tired of looking at this huge spot of dirt in our yard! I'll be posting pics as soon as work begins!

    Re: Pool is here!!

    I can relate to the excitement! We just put up our Sharkline Heritage 27' round last month and am still excited about it. We have the same pump and filter as you and like it, however check your package to make sure they sent the correct instruction manual. Our package (manufacturer's fault, not PSW) had the wrong instructions which caused us to go a week with water in the pool and no pump/filter running. The pump is very quiet on low speed; we only use high speed when running the cleaner. Just got our first electric bill with the pool up and running and the increase was minimal. Happy about that! We also bought from Pool Supply World.

    Thanks for the heads up, we checked everything last year and all was well Did you post pics of your install or pool anywhere on the forum?

    Electric has been installed and sand delivered. Monday morning can't come fast enough! My tf-100 came earlier this week. Yesterday I bought cya, baking soda and bleach. I'm ready!

    If your really eager to get at it you can try a few test runs with your TF100 on your house water, just to get a few tests under your belt.

    I've already tested the tap water. This isn't my first time using the kit, we had an Intex pool before and I used the tf-100 then also

    Well, just our luck. It's going to rain today, we have an 80% chance. So, our install may be postponed. I'm praying a miracle happens and it misses us.

    I would gladly take your rain if I could. All we've had is memories of it. Do get the levelling right...you'll never regret the extra effort unless you don't.

    Re: Pool is here!!

    They're calling for rain Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for us. We are just digging right now but I'll be using my time wisely to get the ground prepared for our build. I don't think our pool will be up until the beginning of July as we have to budget our materials wisely. Our hill side is eating through money like an algae bloom eats up chlorine!

    Post lots of pics!!!
